SOLD! MacFarlane Homes – Client Testimonial – Seller Mountain View Single Family Home

Here’s another Seller testimonial from my clients who I met when preparing their next door neighbor’s home. They saw us working into the late evening hours and they liked that I work well representing out-of-state home owners, plus I’m a member of Professional Fiduciary Association in Silicon Valley. I enjoy helping others and it’s an honor to receive family referrals.

Let me know if I can assist you with anything at all, even if out of state, I’m here to serve anyway I can!

Excellent Time To Sell In Today’s Sellers’ Market

2021 was a GREAT market for sellers!

2021 sets the stage for 2022 with higher median prices & lowest home inventory we’ve ever seen! We’ve seen the return of the sales cycle … Buyers are unrelenting; California is a state full of very rich people! Wealth continues to grow with higher income mostly Silicon Valley tech families worked from home/ $$$$ saved and as buyers they gave up contingencies and pay any appraisal gap problems! Supply and demand meaning there is a LOT of buyers (there is no bubble). The time to buy is now (If you want to buy, buy now with rates going up) and if you’re a seller this is an all time low inventory. The shortage of housing persists in 2022.

*Call me if you’re interested in learning about your local market and home property comps in your area. I’m always happy to help. Have a good Super Bowl no matter your team… 49ers aren’t in it so…meh 😛

Why This Is a Great Year to Sell Your Vacation Home

As vaccines are administered and travel resumes, many of us are beginning to plan for those long-awaited vacations we missed out on over the past year. Some households are focusing their efforts on buying a vacation home rather than staying in a hotel, too. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) reports:

Second homes (i.e., homes sold to buyers who are not going to occupy the home year-round, but use it as a vacation home, investment property, etc.) account for 15 percent of new single-family home sales.”

It’s not surprising that there’s an increase in demand for vacation homes. The majority of Americans are realizing they prefer to be around small groups, as shown in a recent survey from The Harris Poll:

“Social distancing taught consumers new things about how they like to socialize; (75%) said, ‘during COVID social distancing I realized I preferred smaller social gatherings at home or at friends’ place.’”

Not only are vacation homes seen as a potentially more pandemic-friendly way to travel and socialize, but they can also serve as an extended home-away-from-home. With more Americans being given the option to continue working remotely or retire earlier than expected, vacation homes can be used year-round. The NAHB explains:

“Remote work arrangements have made it possible for some wealthier Americans to move to alternate locations that are not just small, suburban shifts from within their current metro area.  More fundamentally, second home demand may also be benefitting by an acceleration of retirement plans, as well as stock market gains.”

Bottom Line

The demand for vacation homes has increased and will continue to rise as we head into summer. If you own a house in a destination area and have thought about selling, now is a great time to take advantage of today’s high buyer interest.
